Solving Rubik's Cube While Skydiving.


If you thought solving the complexities of top toy the Rubik's Cube was tough, try doing it while dropping from an airplane!

Skydiving wasn't enough for German Ludwig Fichte, who had to plunge 4,300 meters (14,000ft) in a rubber dinghy while tackling Erno Rubik's twisting challenge.

And, drum roll please, the student cracked the Cube's mystery in 31.5 seconds with 2,500 meters (8,200ft) to spare.

Freefall: Ludwig Fichte plunges 14,000ft in a rubber dinghy while tackling the Rubik's CubeĀ 


That gave him ample time deploy his parachute and float safely to the ground.

The student said: 'Solving the Rubik's Cube in freefall has been done before by three people, as far as I know. But I am the first to do it in a rubber boat.'

Now, freefalling Fichte wants to do it again: 'I want to try the skydive again - some ideas would be to compete with another speed-cuber sitting in the boat or solving two cubes in a row.'

For a record, the best time ever recorded for completing the Rubik's Cube is 7.08 seconds.

Missing complete: Fichte finished the cube with 8,200ft to spare

Rocking the boat: Fichte had ample time deploy his parachute and float safely to the ground
